Hiera Debug Functions

I wrote a very simple wrapper function for hiera that will output debug information into $logidr/hiera_debug_stephensmacbook. This file will be overwritten on every puppet run.

This includes the scope of the hiera call the default value and the value actually found.

Usage Functions

If you want to find out what hiera is doing when looking up values simple change all hiera function calles to heira_debug, hiera_debug_array, hiera_debug_hash, hiera_debug_include.

Example manifest

$test = hiera_debug('wibble','default')
$test2 = hiera_debug('wibble2',['1','2','3'])
$test3 = hiera_debug_array('wibble2','default')
$test4 = hiera_debug_hash('wibble2',{ key1 =>  val1, key2 => val2})

example logfile

{:version=>2228119500}
{:default=>"default", :value=>"default", :variablename=>"wibble", :lookscope=>"main"}
{:default=>["1", "2", "3"], :value=>["10", "11", "12"], :variablename=>"wibble2", :lookscope=>"main"}
{:default=>"default", :value=>"default", :variablename=>"wibble2", :lookscope=>"main"} 
{:default=>{"key1"=>"val1", "key2"=>"val2"}, :value=>{"key1"=>"val1", "key2"=>"val2"}, :variablename=>"wibble2", :lookscope=>"main"}
